What do I listen to in the afternoon? WLS and Roe Conn and Garry Meier. These two always put a great spin on the topics of the day ranging from politics to media to sports (Roe's Sonia Sosa bits are priceless). Lately it's been an unmixed bag do to the absence of Garry from the lineup. WLS pulled Garry from the air as a contract negotiation tactic (Garry's contract expires Wednesday).
Roe has soldiered on, hosting the show by himself. He's categorically stated that the two will be reunited either at WLS or at another station (rumored to be WGN or WSCR(!)). Roe's contract expires sometime this summer.
I, for one, would love to see them boot the afternoon show at WSCR into oblivion. While Doug Buffone is marginally listenable, his counterpart is not. All I ever hear is Hot Dog Boy saying, "I will tell you this!" screaming at the top of his lungs and words coded for the bed sheet and hood crowd. It's sickening that such a show still has an audience here. Isn't Mancow and Stern enough?
Gome back soon, Gar.
